Kim put her famous curves on display for the session, opting for a skintight black top tucked into edgy elasticised pants and white Yeezy sneakers.

Her extra long dark tresses fell effortlessly around her face and shoulders, and she arrived in full glam, drawing attention to bold brows, bronzer and a matte nude lip. 

With Dr Ghavami by her side, who has been visited by stars including Iggy Azalea and Amber Rose, Kim revealed why she sought his services.

Potenza is said to aid in ‘tightening and improving the appearance of blemishes on the skin, through regeneration of elastin and collagen production,’ according to Cynosure Australia.

Kim has always been honest with fans, particularly when it comes to setting the record straight on claims she’s gone under the knife.   

In 2019, the reality star spoke candidly about the appearance of her nose while getting her makeup done by Mario Dedivanovic at The Master Class in Los Angeles.

‘I never had my nose done,’ she said. ‘Everyone thought I did, and I said, “Wait until I have kids because your real features come out”.’  

Mario explained that Kim has a ‘small bump on her nose,’ but he uses a contouring technique to hide it.

While she strongly denies ever having a nose job, she agrees with some of her fans that her face does look different.

‘Pictures, I swear, I look at them and would be like, “Wow, the bump looks so much bigger in some pictures than in others”,’ she admitted.   

The public has watched Kim’s every move for more than a decade, so it’s no surprise she has faced ongoing speculation about the changes in her appearance. 

Kim has long denied getting butt implants to give her famous backside a boost. She was so adamant about shutting down the rumours that she had an X-ray done in season six of Keeping Up with the Kardashians to prove her critics wrong.

However, her curvaceous backside has inspired a legion of fans to get Brazilian butt lifts, a procedure in which fat from other areas of the body is transferred to the derriere to make it fuller.

She is widely considered the driving force behind the upswing in the procedure in recent years, but she has never admitted to having one. 

Kim has also spent more than a decade denying claims that she has had a breast augmentation, a procedure that her sister Kourtney has openly spoken about having when she was just 21.

Kim is known for using gaffer tape to give her chest a boost when she can’t wear a bra, but she has firmly denied ever having a boob job.

‘I have not ever had plastic surgery. I hope after seeing this you guys will never ask me a plastic surgery question again!’ she wrote on her now-defunct blog in 2008. 

The businesswoman went on to point out that she has had large breasts from a young age, explaining: ‘I have had a size C since I was 11 years old.’

However, she noted that she wasn’t entirely opposed to giving her breasts a boost after she had children.

‘One day I will definitely get a lift, but I am waiting until after I have kids,’ she said. ‘Until then, I rely on a great supportive bra!’
